Hey! 👋 I'm Tara, the founder of SmartSweets.

 I started SmartSweets after my love affair with candy turned into an unhealthy relationship with food. I experienced the negative effects sugar has on our health. After spending months recipe testing in my kitchen with a gummy bear mould from Amazon, I innovated the first candy you can feel good about.

At SmartSweets, we're tackling one of the largest and most concerning problems hidden in our every day foods- Sugar.
I can't wait for you to try SmartSweets, and join us on the mission to Kick Sugar!

Enjoy a (naturally) sweet day,

Tara Bosch, SmartSweets Founder

"This 23-year-old CEO of a gummy bear company 
will change the way you think about candy"
-Gina Florio, Hello Giggles


"Her ability to self-start and make connections with fellow entrepreneurs[...] has recently led her to break into the U.S. market– and all this from humble beginnings in her kitchen." 
-The Prevail Project

"Two months after Bosch began recipe testing, she dropped out of college, and in less than a year, she had brought the idea of innovating candy that kicks sugar into national retailers in Canada." 
-Vivienne Decker, Forbes
